|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Ringtone Tools: Buffer overflow vulnerability (GLSA 200503-18)
Date: March 15, 2005
The Ringtone Tools utilities contain a buffer overflow vulnerability, potentially leading to the execution of arbitrary code.
Ringtone Tools is a program for creating ringtones and logos for mobile phones.
Vulnerable: < 2.23
Unaffected: >= 2.23
Architectures: All supported architectures
Qiao Zhang has discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the 'parse_emelody' function in 'parse_emelody.c'.
A remote attacker could entice a Ringtone Tools user to open a specially crafted eMelody file, which would potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Ringtone Tools users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-mobilephone/ringtonetools-2.23"
